There are plenty of things we don’t need, but feel we must buy for the simple fact that it’s a cool product and we want it. If you are a woman, or have a woman in your life, you know all about this.
These five new semi-ridiculous items aren’t at all necessary. However, who doesn’t want a mag koozie, a laser that costs nearly half the price of your pistol or a harpoon that doubles as a spear and triples as an axe? Check out these five new products you really don’t need, but can’t help but want.
United Cutlery Corporation M48 Hawk Harpoon
If you happen to find yourself trapped on a deserted island, United Cutlery’s M48 Hawk harpoon will help you catch food for survival. Attach it to a bamboo rod and spear a wild boar or fish. The shape of the blade doubles as an axe for chopping firewood and its finely pointed, sharp tip acts as a self-defense spear. The blade is made of a solid piece of AUS 6 stainless steel with a black oxide coating. The entire knife/axe/harpoon/spear is 8.25 inches long.

LaserLyte TGL Hi-Point Laser
More and more folks are coming out of the closet—so to speak—and proudly admitting they not only own, but also actually like their Hi-Points. Long made fun of, the Hi-Point is a cheap, ugly gun that works…apparently. If it’s the piece ya’ got, then make it effective with LaserLyte’s TGL trigger guard red laser. It will fit the Hi-Point .380 ACP, 9mm, .40 S&W and .45 ACP. Like most lasers, it has a 650nm, 5mw, Class IIIA laser with on, pulse and off modes. At $75, your $100 gun just became a $200 gun!

MTM Case-Gard Magazine Can
Storing magazines takes up space and can be a bit awkward. MTM Case-Gard makes prepping more organized with its tactical magazine can. The padded and die cut foam interior holds 15, .223 Remington/5.56mm NATO 20 or 30-round AR-15 magazines. Keep them loaded, in order and organized, ready to grab in an instant. The easily stackable boxes have a plastic handle, padlock tabs and an O-ring seal so they are water-resistant.

Maxpedition Tactical Field Deck
“Tactical field deck” is just a fancy way to sell waterproof playing cards. Constructed of 0.31mm PVC, this deck of playing cards designed with soldiers in mind are waterproof and made for extreme conditions. The matte surface of the cards is not reflective. The deck includes poker regulation sized cards and two Jokers. Measuring 2.5-inches wide, 3.5-inches tall and 0.075 inches thick, they will fit in any bag and are perfect for bugging out, bugging-in, camping, hiking, deployment, the hunting lease or anywhere you need some entertainment in less than ideal conditions.
If the playing cards are out of stock, check out these alternatives:
- 5.11 Tactical Gnome Patch
- Century International Arms PAP Rifles Ice Cube Tray
- Rivers Edge Playing Cards
…or HiViz magazine koozie. You might think this thing is absolutely ridiculous, but these mag covers have real world applications—especially for competitors. Designed to keep dirt out of the magazine well and to protect the feed rails, HiViz’s cozy magazine sweaters are made of water-resistant neoprene and will fit most single and double stack pistol magazines from 9mm to .45 ACP. Each package includes two MAG-STO magazine koozies. Pick from black, green or pink.
